    Pricewise, Nialma and Propercloth and Mytailor seem to be more comparable. I would say ModernTailor competes in the price range of Jantzen since they have shirt specials as low as $29.

    ModernTailor Suit - Fit Guarantee

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Hi Everyone,

    Thanks for your comments.
    If it's your first time to order ModernTailor suit, please order our suit swatches Just put a note that you'd like to order suit swatches so you can have a feel of the material we use.

    When you get the suits after a couple of weeks and think that the fit needs alterations, please have it altered in your own local area. Once you have the measurements that you think is perfect for you (as advised by your tailor), then please make another order on our database. We'll send you another suit based on the new measurements you entered for FREE

    Wha!?

    How can they possibly afford to do that? They don't even alter it for you, just...make you a new one....

    My thoughts exactly. The second should fit better then the first, but even if it needs alternations, how can this deal be beat?!

    I always get my shirts from moderntailor.com in about 2 weeks..... On the side note.... has anybody noticed that propercloth sell some of the same fabrics on modern tailor for more money and they claimed that their fabric are from Italy and Japan and made in USA while modern tailor makes their clothe in Shanghai and probably source their fabric in China?

    I've found the fabrics in the "executive collection" (the ones that are priced around $100) to be of reasonably high quality. The lower-priced options are pretty iffy.

    Even the executive collection can be hit or miss, in my experience. A lot of it's decent, but quite a bit of it is so so. For the extra $15-$30 per shirt, I think the leap up to TM is worth it. But YMMV.

    I placed my order Nov 12th, 2009 and now its Jan. 13, 2010, 8 weeks and waiting. I ordered 1 green micro twill from executive collection and 1 Thomas Mason gingham. I went in person for measuring. I called and MyTailor CSR said they are expecting a shipment from HK today Jan. 13th. Seems like 1st orders take 10 weeks hah!

    First orders take awhile. Subsequent orders (at least for me) seem to take exactly 8 weeks from time of order placement to final delivery.

    Finally got the shirts in 8 weeks + 1 day. First impressions, eh. Fit was ok and the quality was ok i guess. CEGO fits better. The collar and collars are just right. I was expecting more. Hopefully the shirts will fit nicely after a couple of washings, but im not holding my breath. My JCREW XS fits better right now.

    You'll want to wash the shirts two or three times to shrink them down to size. For whatever reason, MyTailor doesn't pre-wash its cotton before sewing the shirt, so you'll need to do it yourself. The shirts will fit somewhat loosely out of the box, but ideally, they'll fit very well after a few wash/dry cycles.

    I really respect your patience... Lately, many people have been reporting to have moderntailor shirts delivered door to door in 8 or 9 days.

    I have sent them several emails in the past couple of weeks. No response.

    Their website works for me. I've ordered around 18 shirts from My Tailor and they've all arrived in from 3 to 8 weeks, depending on what time of year it is, and how busy they are. And I've always received prompt responses to my emails, but I don't send them a lot of emails.

    3-8 weeks is too long for me to wait for a shirt. I have used Mytailor and moderntailor but communication and timing just bother me. Nialma 4 for 3 works out at $70 a shirt (inc shipping) and they come quickly between 1-2 weeks without fail. Plus communication is spot on. So much time wasting with the others.

    OK, I had the occasion to buy a few more shirts this summer, and used both vendors. I've purchased from both before so they already have my fit. Results:

    • MyTailor: Ordered May 4, Shipped July 15, Delivered July 19 = 76 days.
    • ModernTailor: Ordered July 7, Shipped July 9(!), Delivered July 15 = 8 days.

    At this point the only thing that keeps MyTailor afloat for me is their selection of mid-priced fabrics for casual shirts. I'm really not interested in planning my shirt needs 2 1/2 months ahead of time.

    I could't wait 76 days

    I really, really didn't think it was going to take that long; my previous order was 29 days. Also, MyTailor's communication is crap. They didn't answer my first email at all. Days later I finally called the California office; the guy there didn't know anything about the status of my order. On the upside, it sort of feels like Christmas morning if and when your shirts show up, because by then you probably forgot you ever placed the order in the first place.

    When I first bought shirts tailored online I used Mytailor, but they have got progressively worse with their service, website etc. Now that I have my profile nailed I just choose amongst a few pf the online tailors depending on the fabrics they have.
